"...where resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow."

 

NFL Offseason Grades - Chris Burke: (post-Forte contract) "...the core of this offense should be around for a few years. On the flip side, the OL is still a potential sieve that basically went ignored."

[Video] A look ahead at Bears training camp - Bowen talks a lot of sense. Kaplan doesn't talk much. It's a good combination.

Schrager's camp countdown - "If I’m Cutler, I’m not exactly doing flips over what’s been done to protect me this offseason." Obviously not a member of J-Webb Nation.

Bears training camp capsules: Secondary - Moon Mullin takes a look at the DBs, reviewing the 2011 season and discussing what to watch for in training camp.

ChicagoBears.com: Spencer confident in Bears backfield - In the eighth of nine position previews in advance of training camp, coach Tim Spencer discusses RBs Matt Forte, Michael Bush and Kahlil Bell.

Will Bears receivers live up to the hype? - Michael C. Wright: "The addition of Marshall and Jeffery doesn’t suddenly make Chicago’s receivers a formidable group. Nobody wants to hear it, but it’s true. The group’s worth still has to be proven on the field. "

CBSChicago's Most Important Bears: No. 6 Matt Forte - "If Forte is leading the Bears in catches this season, then they have a big problem with newly acquired WR Brandon Marshall."

Durkin: Evaluating The Bears Defense Position-By-Position - Dan Durkin doesn't like the dropoff in talent after the starters... or, in Major Wright's case, the starter.

Bears need Shea McClellin to become the third DE force Mark Anderson once was - Brad Biggs: Peppers remains dominant and Idonije is steady but for the Bears defense really to be good, the rookie has to come through quickly.

[Video] Fitzgerald's Top Five Receivers To Watch - Larry Fitzgerald includes Brandon Marshall: "The fun really starts once he catches the ball... guys don't want to tackle him."

Despite recent criticism of NFL RBs, Forte and Rice still draw big contracts - "Teams pay lip service to the notion that RBs are an endangered species, arguably a high-risk/short-shelf life position that should not merit a prohibitive investment, but rarely adhere to the cautionary approach they so often publicly espouse."

Detailed breakdown of Forte contract - Roster bonuses, workout bonuses per season, etc.

The best of the Bears: Outside linebackers - Moon Mullin rates the top three Bears OLBs of all time and the first two choices are awfully close.

Bears Best: Middle linebackers - Not really a spoiler to say #1 is Dick Butkus, is it?

Playbook: How did Vernon Davis beat the Saints? - Bowen uses video to break down the 49ers' TE in the red zone vs Cover 2.

Larry Fitzgerald: Pick Megatron over me in fantasy football - One of the best players at his position in the league is realistic and honest. Meanwhile, not exactly one of the best players at his position in the league J'Marcus Webb tweets about how he's going to "dominate"...

Know thy enemy - Graham Harrell believes he’ll be ready if Aaron Rodgers goes down. Some Bears fans were calling for Caleb Hanie to displace Cutler as starting QB. Just sayin'.

Know thy enemy - PFT Preseason Power Rankings No. 13: Detroit Lions. Outraged Lions fans to commence whining at length about how they should be awarded the Lombardi trophy now in 3, 2, 1...

Could former Bear Benson rejoin the NFCN? - Packers reportedly among teams to call. Potential for arrest alone should intrigue Lions, Vikings.

Profile: former Bears DT Jim Flanigan Jr - Written from the viewpoint of the enemy, but those of you who remember his time in Chicago might enjoy reading about the 7-year Bear.

Buffalo Bills fan builds Ralph Wilson Stadium of Legos - Because Lego is always awesome and I'd like someone to build a replica of Soldier Field.

Lead singer Ian Curtis committed suicide nine months after writing this song during the breakup of his marriage. I've often thought of it as the sound of human misery in musical form.
